Floodplain Risk Management Study

Billabong Creek Floodplain Management Study (Phase B Report)

Billabong Creek is situated between the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers in southern New South Wales. The study area, shown on Figure 1, covers that portion of the Billabong Creek floodplain from Walbundrie in the east to Jerilderie in the west. This area covers approximately 4,000 square kilometres, of which some 3,000 square kilometres is subject to frequent flooding. The primary objectives of the Billabong Creek FMP are to:

  • Coordinate floodplain development in order to minimise adverse changes to surface flow patterns;
  • Develop and adopt floodplain management principles and development assessment criteria;
  • Increase the sustainable social, economic and ecological benefits of using the floodplain; and
  • Improve and maintain the diversity and well-being of native riverine and floodplain ecosystems that depend on regular flood inundation.
